If you’re not sure whether or not your home needs a sewer inspection, here are some telltale signs it’s time to give us a call.
You Just Purchased a Home
Whether you are finalizing your purchase or you are starting to move into your new home, this is a critical time to make sure your sewer line is functioning properly. This is doubly true if you’re buying an older home, or if there are a lot of trees and other foliage on the property. The roots of larger trees may be drawn towards the sewer lines because of the water, and can intrude on them as a result. This can erode or collapse your sewer line. This makes a sewer video inspection critical for assessing whether or not your plumbing will work properly in your new home.
Your Drains Are Backing Up
If your drains have stopped working, or even if they are exceptionally slow, this almost always points to an issue with the plumbing or sewer line. After attempting the common interventions (such as a plunger), if your drains are still slow, a sewer inspection is the best way to assess where your pipes are being blocked.
There’s a Leak Under the Foundation
If there’s a leak under the foundation of your home, it is most often due to a damaged sewer line. Because it is under your home, it’s difficult to assess the source of the leak, but a video inspection can often find the leak without having the dig up the line itself.
Your Water Pressure Varies
If there is a leak in your sewer line, it will cause a significant drop in your water pressure. If it’s a leaky pipe, it’s relatively easy to figure out the source of the problem, but if the leak originates from the sewer line, it’s much more difficult to determine the source. If you have inconsistent water pressure, or water pressure that’s much lower than it should be, and the problem can’t be determined in your home, it may be with your sewer line. A sewer camera inspection can help assess and see if there is a leak before it becomes much more damaging.
The invention of sewer video inspections has made it a lot easier for homeowners to assess issues with their sewer lines, preventing much bigger issues in the future. If you’ve recently purchased a home or have noticed any of the above problems, you’re overdue for a sewer inspection. With our state-of-the-art technology, we’re able to provide affordable and effective sewer video inspections promptly, helping you address your plumbing issues ASAP.
